[ARCHIVED] The Constitution Murders Author Event - Wednesday, August 15, Noon - 1 pm

Square From Flyer

Join Hampton native, noted public historian and author Conover Hunt for “Turning History Into Mystery,” a discussion of her first novel “The Constitution Murders,” part of the Hampton History Museum’s free “Lunch in Time” series on Wednesday, August 15, noon-1 pm.

All along the East Coast, someone has evaded sophisticated security systems to break into thirteen of America’s most iconic historic sites. More puzzling, the intruders haven’t stolen anything from the landmarks. Instead, they’ve left behind pieces of a dismembered woman.

Hamilton Coles, a former CIA operative working in a special unit charged with protecting the nation’s most important historic monuments, is assigned to the case. He quickly enlists the help of his former lover, Cary Mallory. She’s a historian and antiques dealer who might be able to unravel the common denominator underlying the break-ins: they all have some relation to the US Constitution.

Who’s behind the break-ins, and what message, if any, is the murder meant to send? And could it be just a coincidence that the victim’s DNA reveals that she was related to Nicholas II, the last Russian tsar?

The Constitution Murders is a thrill ride that whisks readers across state lines and multiple continents as Coles and Mallory pursue the clue that will finally give them the answers they seek. But is it worth putting their own lives in jeopardy to learn the truth?
